Article
Wheat crops are frequently devastated by pandemic stripe rust caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst). Here, we identify and characterize a wheat receptor-like cytoplasmic kinase gene, TaPsIPK1, that confers susceptibility to this pathogen. PsSpg1, a secreted fungal effector vital for Pst virulence, can bind TaPsIPK1, enhance its kinase...

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are vital for plant immunity and regulation of their production is crucial for plant health. While the mechanisms that elicit ROS production have been relatively well studied, those that repress ROS generation are less well understood. Here, via screening Brachypodium distachyon RNA interference (RNAi) mutants, we iden...

Although lithium sulfur batteries have the advantage of high theoretical energy density and low cost, the problems arising from the polysulfide shutting and the Li metal dendrite remain challenging. Among all the solutions, separator coating is a compromise solution which can not only impede polysulfide shuttling but also suppress the Li dendrite g...

Wheat stripe rust, caused by Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici (Pst), is one of the most serious threats to wheat production worldwide. Changes of Pst virulence may circumvent resistance in wheat varieties, and application of fungicides may cause environmental problems. Parasites of Pst can be used to develop biological agents for environmentally...

This paper attempts a character study of China’s economic system under Mao to uncover changes and continuities between Mao’s economy and post-Mao Chinese economic reforms. While some historical roots of China’s market transformation can be readily traced back to Mao’s era, it remains open to debate how Mao’s legacies were actually translated into i...
